On Wednesday, Starfield Resources, Inc. announced that the Company started the previously announced drilling of the West Zone extension at Ferguson Lake, Nunavut. They expect to continue this work until early September 2011.
In addition, they announced that, because of weather conditions, they have not been able to begin drilling at their Stillwater, Montana property. The Company’s plan is to focus the initial drilling on the volatile enriched zone (VEZ) PGE target. Their second priority is the PGE target referred to as the Crescent Creek dunite pipe, located south of the Janet 50 area of the VEZ. The expectation is that drilling will commence next week.
Roscoe Postle Associates (RPA) continues to work on an update to the 2008 Ferguson Lake Scoping Study. Presently, it is uncertain when the work will finish and the full report made available.
SGS Canada Inc. continues to make excellent progress toward pilot plant testing of Starfield Resources, Inc.’s hydromet process on massive sulphides from Ferguson Lake. Starfield will begin shipping a 9,000-pound sample to the SGS testing facility at Lakefield, Ontario this month for this purpose. DRA Americas Inc. has begun work to update the 43-101 study on Starfield Resources’ chrome assets in Montana. The expectation is that this work will be completed in the fall.
Andre Douchane, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are excited to finally be drilling our Stillwater PGM property and to be able to drill for the west extension of the Ferguson Lake massive sulphides.”
Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Starfield Resources, Inc. is an advanced exploration and development stage company.
